This time of year can be very hectic. There are presents to buy. Perhaps travel plans to make. Cookies to bake. Parties at home and at work. Plus snow and ice and cold weather.
It’s refreshing to pause, relax and enjoy with our families the many opportunities our community offers this holiday season.
The Berea Historical Society will host its Victorian Tea on Sunday, Dec. 14 at the Mahler Museum & History Center. Berea-Midpark High School music groups offer a series of concerts as does Baldwin Wallace University. The Active Senior Network’s annual Christmas celebration will be Dec. 17 followed by a Happy “Noon” Year’s Eve Party on Dec. 30. The Quarry Kids, the Berea Recreation Center’s play group for pre-schoolers, will enjoy a Christmas Stocking Decorating Party on Dec. 18. And to keep us in shape, during and after all that special holiday food, the Berea Rec is offering a Christmas Eve Spinning session on Dec. 24.
Check out the schedules on the City Web site or The Berean Newsletter.
Thanks to the many volunteers who made the Jack Frost Festival & Light Up Berea Parade such a success on Saturday, Dec. 6. It was a very special way to begin the winter holiday season in our town. From our own Santa Claus and those who marched in the parade to volunteers who helped decorate the downtown area and hand out refreshments, we are very grateful that gave of your time and efforts to make your hometown a very festive sight.
On behalf of my administration and all of the employees of the City of Berea, I wish you a Happy Chanukah, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
